    Hi. I am slowly modding my 10/22 to be a tack driver. They are fun little things. Anyway, my .920 barrel is on its way so I will need to replace the stock soon. I want a synthetic stock and saw that the Hogue Overmold stock is pretty nice for the price. I noticed that they come in two different types, rubber or nylon.

    I was ready to buy the rubber one, but a lot of people say that it is not good for target shooting because it is too flexible. So there is always the nylon one which is much stiffer. What is your experience with this? I like the feel of the rubber, but dont want it if it will not shoot as well as a stiff stock.

    Thanks :o

    Cost is a big factor. I just want an inexpensive stock that can hold the .920 barrel. I dont want to rechannel my factory stock.

    What do you think about the rubber vs. nylon?

    I really like this look :o

    n00b question - what exactly is a "tack driver" other than an accurate rifle...

    Like the rifle is accurate and consistant enough to drive a tack through a wall by repeatingly hitting it over and over? :o

    I'd really get the nylon one if you're set on the Hogue stock. The rubber flexing does have merit, and the stock can certainly affect the accuracy. I don't know if glass bedding will work on the nylon stock, but if it does you can always do that in the future to get some more accuracy. If not you might be able to do pillar bedding. Other bad thing about not having a wood stock is that you probably cant free float the barrel chamber. unless you can sand down that nylon.

    gl!

    Scraping out a barrel channel is completely doable with a nylon stock.

    Yea, cant do any of that stuff on the nylon or rubber stocks unless you put in A LOT of work into it. People seem to have trouble getting the stuff to stick due to release agents in the nylon?

    Thanks :hs:

    People bed synthetic stocks all the time, where are you guys getting your information? Or are the Hogue stocks made out of some sort of amazingly shitty material that I'm unaware of?

    Just reading off boards. So bedding is just as easy as it would be for wood?

    As long as you rough the surface and follow the directions, I don't see what the problem would be. I have no experience with 10/22's, so I don't know how the bedding would work on them, but if it's anything like a regular bolt rifle you shouldn't have a problem.

    I said that I didn't know if you could, not that you couldn't. If you can, great.

    The hogue stocks are basically a synthetic stock covered in rubber material. Once you have it, you'll be able to see it's just as rigid as any other synthetic stock. Mine has given me no problems.

    I agree completely, I've never seen a thumbhole I didn't think was ugly.

    Uh something has to be bedded there junior, you can't magically make the action and barrel float in a stock. :hsugh:

    oh.. i just meant the barrel.

    is the barrel on a 10/22 attached to the front of the stock?

    on my 270 its only attached to the receiver :dunno:

    There is just a single take-down screw, it is closer to the receiver/action. Some factory 10/22s have a barrel band on the end.
